Blended out with Pinot Blanc, Riesling and a bit of Moscato this wine is what we called an “Alsacian Blend”. Given that Chardonnay is not a major part of Alsacian winemaking we realize it’s a fanciful endeavor but the name is meant to evoke more the style of the region, a style, I think, those of you who enjoy less wooded wines with brighter acidity will enjoy. Now, that’s not to say this wine didn’t see oak. The base wine for this blend saw about 25% new French oak including barrel fermentation but no malolactic fermentation so, instead of being buttery and rich, its peachy and fresh. Blend in the aforementioned varietals to the tune of about 15% and the resulting wine is a complete departure from traditional Chardonnay. Zippy and bright with a rich midpalate of fresh peach fruit this wine will make a fantastic spring aperitif wine and a welcome partner to Asian cuisine, fruit salads, picnics, and poolside.
